Little Girl Swimming With Her Body Board
We offer swim lessons through our “Learn to Swim Program” taught by American Red Cross certified staff.  We believe that all children need basic aquatic safety and swimming skills. All classes are held at the Walsh Intermediate School 185 Damascus Road (enter through door 165)  and during the summer months at Hospice Pool, 100 Double Beach Road, Branford.   (Please make sure that you park in the parking lot and not in any NO PARKING ZONES).  Only the parent and the child will be allowed to attend classes.  Each level includes water safety topics & basic water skills.  Children must be in a swim diaper if not potty trained. Classes will be held rain or shine and will NOT run if there is thunder or lightning.
